      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Directional flushes?

Does anybody else's dog flush tight holding birds towards the hunter? Do dogs ever get trained to flush birds toward the hunter?

One of my dog's will "go around" on tight holding birds and flush them directly at me. Seriously, first he'll go to his very poor tail-wagging-point(not-trained), then work his way around to attempt to flush the bird directly at me! It can make for some exciting action. I first noticed it a little last fall on wild pheasants, and really noticed again recently with preserve birds. I have in no way intentionally trained the dog to do this, he has picked it up on his own. I think he was getting tired of me missing, and is just trying to help! Anybody else?

I can't say that I have had that experience (at least consistently) from a flusher other then related to the wind direction. We all like to work into the wind but periodically I end up working a cross wind or slightly down wind and I have had my dogs do that but I have always thought it was more related towards working back towards the wind. In cross wind or down wind situations, experienced dogs will learn how to use the wind direction and circle back to use the wind to their benefit, which sometimes leads to flushes towards the hunter. Not sure if that is what you're encountering?

When I first started hunting, our dog did that. He'd circle them and flush them towards my dad. He's on dog #3 and it never fails every year we'll be walking and the "I wish he was here" story comes up.
